The April 1 premiere of Game of Thrones season 2 cannot come fast enough.When They Said Winter Is Coming, They Meant It
But, as in a never-ending winter, the time until that fateful date must pass slowly with little to keep the warmth of our fan fervor burning. Fortunately, we have a new Game of Thrones season 2 poster and a behind-the-scenes production video released by HBO. Keep reading to check out both.
Reality usually has little place in scripted television.
Most shows are filmed primarily on sets or in studio back-lots, with only occasional forays into real-world locations. Not Game of Thrones
. During season 1, the show introduced us to a visually stunning Westeros, much of it filmed on location in places as far-flung as Malta, Northern Ireland and Croatia.
Judging from this new Game of Thrones
video released by HBO, season 2 will be just as stunning. The production video takes a look at the Iceland locations that will stand in for the wintery lands north of The Wall.
Check it out below:
There's really something in this video for everyone. From the technical details of filming a remote, far-north location (four hours of daylight!) to the frequent descriptions of how very cold everyone was to the refreshing hotness of Kit Harrington (Jon Snow), this definitely counts as a comprehensive Game of Thrones
video.Want more Game of Thrones video? Click here for a teaser trailer from Game of Thrones season 2
.More Than Just Winter Coming
Winter is bad enough. But war? Things are definitely not going to be much fun for the characters on Game of Thrones
HBO has released a fittingly bleak poster to advertise the second season of their hit fantasy show. Less is more, it seems, when it comes to Game of Thrones
. Check out the Game of Thrones
season 2 poster below.
You've got to love an advertising campaign that feels secure enough to not
put the show's title anywhere on the poster. Of course, any Game of Thrones
fan would know what the poster means, even without text or explanation. Game of Thrones
season 2 premieres on Sunday, April 1 at 9pm on HBO.(Images and video courtesy of HBO)
